It all falls into place

It all falls into place

If you do the work

They say everything works out for a reason, it was meant to be

But things only fall into place if you do the work,

Like you won’t get that job if you don’t apply for it, turn up for the interview…

You won’t get the job if you don’t do the qualification

You want get the date if you dont ask the person out…

The work needs to be done

If you want things to fall into place

Sign a contract with yourself

Sign a contract with yourself

You punch in at your work, do your hours, take your breaks when scheduled, do what the contract requires, then leave

Yet our ideas, whether that’s going to the gym or reading or saving

We just free ball it

We go if we feel like it, or put money into our savings if we remember

What if you wrote a contract out and signed it

Stating all the requirements of what you set out to do

Like every month I will save 10-20% of my wage

Or i will go to the gym 3x per week at this time

It works, my gym requires that you book in before going now,

Which is good because once your booked in you have to show up because if you don’t someone else could have had that space

Sign a contract
And do what you said you would

Study what?

Study what?
if you don’t learn these things to put into practice, why learn them in the first place?
– Epictetus

Why do you read or take that course, or watch those how to videos and not implement what you have studied.

To say I know that?

Studying on it’s own is useless, knowledge on it’s own won’t do anything.

If the purpose of study is to collect knowledge then you can instead focus your time on something more useful that will impact your life

Because study without implementing is a waste of time,
Learn, but make sure you do something with it afterwards

Comfort is the enemy

Comfort is the enemy
-J Cole

When Cole was talking about how he didn’t become a professional basketball player he said that it was because he wasn’t putting in the work,

He said he was playing ball every day, but he wasn’t working with coaches and practicing drills, he was pretending to do something…

Then when his friends pointed out that he was doing the same thing with his rap career

He was like oh shit and it woke him up that he was just working in his comfort zone

So he would write a song or a verse and make a beat before he went to the studio.
He would do 7 minute drills where for 7 minutes he would write.

Comfort is the enemy, comfort cost him his basketball career and almost cost him his rap one too

Do the work
Every day

It is an option

It is an option

At some point we need to admit that it’s simply just not working

And we need to move on

It is an option

Don’t let Instagram fool you

Those influencers with their shitty quotes

Not everything works out

Life is not a movie

Giving up allows you to move on

Move on to somthing that might work out

Somthing life changing

But first you need to let go

One you have tried every avenue, every possible scenario

Then you can give up

Just know it is an option
And failure is part of life

Failure leads the way

Failure is a prerequisite to succsess
